The Octopus and I
By Erin Hortle
It is so hard when everyone in the bookshop raves and raves about a title. The expectations become unattainable, except when you’ve got a tale like this. I’m saving it for a reread in Summer, because I’m certain there are more subtleties that I’ve missed. A great debut.
A stunning debut novel set on the Tasmanian coast that lays bare the wild, beating heart at the intersection of human and animal, love and loss, and fear and hope.
